LYCATAB® C Partially Pregalatinized Starch - Pharma

LYCATAB® C partially pregelatinized starch is used as a filler for gelatin capsules and filler/binder for direct compression. LYCATAB® C combines the disintegration power of starch granules with the high cohesion and good compressibility of pregelatinized starch. Native starch is a common excipient for tablet and capsule manufacture. Due to its limited flow properties, native starch often requires the use of additional excipients and production steps such as granulation. A simple physical modification of starch (a partial pregelatinization) helps overcome these difficulties and results in a multifunctional excipient. LYCATAB® C is used in oral dosage forms in both pharmaceutical and nutraceutical applications, mainly for swallowable tablets and hard capsules. It is used as a filler/binder/disintegrant.
